(IRVING, TX) — The Dallas Cowboys reached an agreement with quarterback Tony Romo on a six-year contract extension worth $108 million, according to league sources.
The agreement was made with Romo in order for the team to lock up their franchise quarterback. It will also allow them to clear up salary-cap space to bring in more players for this season.
Romo received $55 million in guaranteed money from the Cowboys, $3 million more than Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco received in the mega-deal he signed earlier this month.
The 32-year-old Romo is the Cowboys’ all-time leader in touchdown passes with 174 and holds single-season franchise records for both passing yards and touchdowns. He has been with the club since 2003.
